Saturday, October 19, 2019—Elementary, middle and high school Atoms competed in the MOST's CNY Steamboat Challenge. Participants work in groups of three to engineer a steamboat made out of recycled materials and powered by steam created by the heat of a tea candle. Boats will race on 3" of water in an inflatable raceway that measures 110" long and 6" wide. With over 60 teams participating from across Central New York participants were judged on the following criteria.
- Speed of boat
- Team's presentation of judges about how they built the boat and what they learned
- Team's creativity and innovation in designing the boat
Atoms were thrilled to have participated in this event and are already brainstorming ideas for next year's competition. Congratulations to all our Atoms who competed. We are so proud of you!
